Smart. Safe. Clean.

It is my pleasure to bring you eco-luscious Bath and Body Essentials inspired by my passion for healthy living and backed up by my education and experience as a Registered Nurse, certified in Wound & Skin Care.

My products are thoughtfully handcrafted completely from scratch from recipes that I've developed and perfected over the years. You will not find questionable or unrecognible ingredients in anything I offer. I don't dilute or disguise my products with cheap filler oils, petroleum, artificial colorants, or skin stripping chemicals. You'll never find sulfates, phthlates, or parabens in any of my products. I source raw materials fair-trade globally, organic when called for.

I adore the art and science of scent blending to capture the magic of aroma. It's a scientific fact that scent is our most powerful memory trigger; it connects us to the present moment and influences mood, feelings, and emotions. The simple pleasure of a beautiful scent doesn't require planning or take up any of our time to enjoy, it's a quick hit of guilt-free indulgence.

My soaps are made using the time honored traditional cold process method with plant-based oils, unrefined butters and botanicals all chosen for their nourishing properties and luxurious feel to gently cleanse without stripping moisture from the skin. Your bars will arrive in recyled paper boxes to protect them from germs, dust, and dings. The packaging makes a lovely gift presentation.

What makes C9SC's soap superior and different than other handcrafted soaps?

  • My bars weigh a generous 5 oz., that's 25% larger than the industry standard 4 oz. bar.
  • My short list of top-shelf ingredients.
  • I include only essential working ingredients and take everything else out.
  • I believe the ingredients should take center stage, do their job, treat you and the enviroment gently, and avoid being geared to label appeal.
  • Balance, it's key. A great bar of soap needs the correct ratio of cleansing oils to conditioning oils, and the correct proportion of lye to liquid.

What makes C9SC's candles premium and different than other candles?

  • I use only pure soy wax, sourced from U.S.A. farms. (Did you know that paraffin wax is actually petroleum?)
  • Cotton-core wicks
  • Essential oil infused phthalate-free fragrance oils for amazing scent throw
  • No added colorants
  • Glass apothecary-inspired jars with metal lids that can be washed out with soap and water and re-purposed
  • My mimimalist white label will compliment your decor rather than advertise my company

I take pride in doing my part to protect our planet by packaging all of my products in earth-friendly glass, paper, and cloth.

I don't have overpriced packaging, trade shows to attend, sales reps, distributors, marketing staff, or any agenda other than delivering the very finest products directly to you at a reasonable price. Because of my simple business model, I can and do spend my dollar on premium ingredients.
